A really good restaurant where the staff are friendly and helpful, and the team clearly care about good food. The team was very happy to accommodate our vegan requirements, changing some ingredients to suit our needs. Wonderful flavours and a good atmosphere.

Just in case you are in the vicinity, and this little gem of a restaurant is so good I would suggest 'the vicinity' would be Scotland, do go eat there. We managed to get a table at short notice, a recommendation from a local B&B,...More
